I am sorry you had to wait a while for your answer, it appears there were not many experts available when you first asked the question. Lets make your dog more comfortable.

You can indeed give your dog tramadol to help with pain. It works well for some dogs and not well for other dogs just like with people.

How much does your dog weigh? I can help you come up with a dose using this information.
